Kneeboard in a 737

Hi guys, I've been flying the 737 for about a year now and I find it quite hard writing on paper in the flight deck. I've been considering using my knee-board which straps onto my leg. Is anyone else using it or have any other suggestions? My concern is the kneeboard might interfere with the control column.

Thanks

Don't try an Airbus unless you like short days to feel long, boring and tedious. Just get a clipboard

Kneeboard ... are you serious? What's wrong with using the thingy Boeing gave you, the one under the side window? Or the clipboard that holds the OFP...?

A folded newspaper works for me. Stiff enough to take writing yet flexible enough to get out of the way easily. An added bonus is that you can do the crossword/sudoku during the approach and pretend that you’re copying the latest ATIS.

What format does your OFP take and where do you put your briefing notes and reminders?

Use clipboard.
Don't use kneeboard in 737. It looks ridiculous.
